Description

On the south porch of the Town Church are three statues, in the center Christ with a cross staff, flanked by statues of probably Mary and St. John (although, those belong to a calvary scene). Below the Christ statue is a quotation from John 11: " I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live".
